My two sense on 'Museveni's law'
11 September 2014, 18:58
Nairobi - Homosexuality is frowned upon in Africa and in most countries it is illegal, and cannot simply be spoken about in an open conversation, Kenya being one of them.
But how can the matter, if it is a bad topic, be addressed?
Our neighbor Mr Museveni across in Uganda has proven to be the most vocal about it. What I do not get is, what they mean when they say it is illegal. You cannot do it in public? Make sure we do not find out about it? What do you mean? Can you really control it? And are you going to arrest all those people in university and high school which is where it is totally rampant? I for one learnt the 'basics' of homosexuality in school.. How do they deal with that?
What about those that have been abused in high school? How do they deal with such matters?

What I personally think, may not be so important because, I have never been abused in school as some people go through these. So maybe the law is there to protect them or not? But how can it do so, when the culprits are never apprehended. And some of them are just people who are using others to experiment a phase they are going through. It is a double edged sword because too many factors are meant to be considered but are overlooked. The only person who can give proper insight is a person who feels that their right is being violated by such a law as well as a victim of such abuse in our learning institutions.
What is your say? Were you sexually abused in high school? Did you suffer in silence? Museveni might as well start from that level if what I saw and have heard is anything to go by.
